In 2020, a fellow from Oslo, Norway sent me the following folder which contained colour, pull-out sheets of the saxophones and brass winds that Weltklang was producing in 1980.
Petter had owned a music store in Oslo for years, and when he closed it down a number of things ended up in his attic. While cleaning out his attic a decade or more later, he decided that he would offer his B&S materials to me.
The post-reunification materials can all be found listed on on the VMI page of my site. So far these are the only VEB materials that he has sent. Fingers crossed that perhaps he might one day still stumble across a B&S folder, brochure, or pamphlet as well.
On behalf of everyone who will eventually use these pages to research their horns,”Thank You” Petter for choosing to share these materials with me. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
